Featuring members from Elvenking, Evenoire, and Sound Storm, Italy’s Shadygrove will be releasing the debut album "In The Heart of Scarlet Wood" via Rockshots Records on April 6th, with pre-orders available at this location.
Fans of Blackmore’s Night and Loreena McKennitt will find much to love on this debut album with its acoustic heaviness being truly original and special. Shadygrove makes music as fresh as tomorrow’s dawn.
Today, the band teamed up with Brave Words to premiere the video clip for the new single "Scarlet Wood," which you can check out over here, or just simply in the player above. “Folk, ethnic, acoustic Celtic pop. We are trying to bring the popular music of our regions, mixed with Celtic and Medieval music, to a more modern view without altering its soul. We write very evocative songs to guide the listener on a journey to where nature still rules.” says violinist Fabio ‘Lethien’ Polo.
Vocalist Lisy Stefanoni adds: “We love the different styles of folk music and the various approaches of the main musicians. We also love the Celtic music. In the metal genre, folk metal inspires us the most. We listen to bands like Eluveitie, In Extremo, also symphonic projects like Ayreon and The Gentle Storm. Those who love folk-metal will certainly appreciate our songs because we all come from that musical background. We take our fans on a journey to a place where myths are real and there is evidence of the magic forces of our planet. In this world the listener can meet legendary creatures walking into enchanted landscapes or see ancient rituals happening.”
The track listing is:
1. Scarlet Wood 2. My Silver Seal 3. The Port Of Lisbon 4. Eve Of Love 5. This Is The Night 6. Cydonia 7. Northern Lights 8. Let The Candle Burn 9. Queen Of Amber
